100% Rye Whiskey

MADE BY 1512 SPIRITS IN ROHNERT PARK, CALIFORNIA

MOUTH SAYS...

Ah, tradition. Salvatore "Sal" Cimino is not only a third-generation barber, he's carried on his father's and grandfather's love of distilling (although his are the family's first legal bottles on the market!). So, when we got our first taste of this 100% rye, we expected something truly old-school. And this is one old-school whiskey, in the best way: it’s bready, peppery, warming, with HUGE flavor.

This super-special whiskey is distilled by hand in an extra-small, handmade, 90-gallon still (the smallest we've heard of!). Sal gets on his hands and knees to move and adjust the flame under this tiny still.

tip of the tongue

If you’re in San Francisco, go meet your distiller. Make an appointment for a haircut and a taste of small-batch dedication (we've heard he actually serves his customers shots of his latest batch!).
